Authorities have revealed that he suffered multiple gun wounds and his car had been sprayed with over 30 bullets.

Earlier reports by Imenti North police boss, Alexander Makau had mistaken the senior official for a criminal who had been executed by his rivals or business partners. However, this has been quickly refuted following the statement by KWS.

It is also alleged that a gun with bullets was recovered in the victim’s vehicle.
